Faraday, M A,  2005,  Herefordshire Taxes in the Reign of Henry VIII,  474pp & map, Quarto, Bound


"The reign of Henry VIII was a period of heavy and innovative taxation designed to reach a greater proportion of the population than any tax since the poll taxes of 1377-81.  Its extent would not be matched until ship-money in the 1630s.  The aim of this volume is to bring together, for the first time for any county, all the known surviving documents relating to the taxation of Herefordshire between 1509 and 1547."


The volume lists about 30,000 taxpayers arranged by hundred and vill, with the payments due from each.  The assessments are an essential source for the social, economic and demographic base of the county at the time of the Reformation.  Vital for local historians, they are also a valuable genealogical tool for family historians in the period immediately before the existence or survival of parish registers.
